Jordan Mein (born October 10, 1989) is a Canadian mixed martial artist. He currently fights in the Welterweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, and formerly competed for Strikeforce and King of the Cage.

Background[edit]

Mein's father, Lee Mein, began operating a local promotion called Rumble in the Cage. It gave Mein, who had been training since the age of four, his first fighting opportunity and when he was just 11 years old he fought another local boy in a kickboxing match.[2] That fight helped start Mein's fighting career that has included kickboxing tournaments, Brazilian jiu-jitsu competitions, amateur and professional.[3]

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Jordan's first amateur fight came when he was 14, and he compiled a 6-1 record before turning professional. He turned professional at the age of 16 in June 2006 at one of his father's Rumble in the Cage shows.[2]

Jordan defeated Joe Riggs via second round KO at Wreck MMA: Strong and Proud on January 28, 2011.

He fought UFC veteran Josh Burkman at MMA 1: The Reckoning on April 2, 2011. He won via unanimous decision.

Strikeforce[edit]

Mein signed a four-fight deal with Strikeforce in July 2011 and made his promotional debut at Strikeforce World Grand Prix: Barnett vs. Kharitonov, defeating Evangelista Santos via TKO in the third round.[4]

Mein fought Tyron Woodley at Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine.[5] He lost a split decision (28-29, 29-28, 30-27).

Mein defeated Tyler Stinson at Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy via unanimous decision.

Score Fighting Series[edit]

Jordan fought Dream Welterweight Champion, Marius Žaromskis at Score Fighting Series 1 on June 10, 2011 Winning via unanimous decision.[6]

Mein fought Forrest Petz in the main event of the Score Fighting Series 7 on November 23, 2012.[7] He won via TKO early in the first round.

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Mein made his UFC promotional against Dan Miller on March 16, 2013 at UFC 158.[8] He won the fight via TKO in the first round.

Mein made a quick return to the Octagon as he faced Matt Brown on April 20, 2013 at UFC on Fox 7, replacing an injured Dan Hardy.[9] He lost the fight via TKO in the second round, after a Brown knee fractured his nasal and orbital bones.[10] Despite the loss, the back-and-forth bout earned him his first Fight of the Night bonus award.[11]

Mein was expected to face Santiago Ponzinibbio on April 19, 2014 at UFC on Fox 11.[12] However, Ponzinibbio was removed from the bout and was replaced by Hernani Perpetuo.[13] He won the fight via split decision.

Mein was expected to face Thiago Alves on August 23, 2014 at UFC Fight Night 49.[14] However, Alves pulled out of the bout citing a knee injury and was replaced by Brandon Thatch.[15]
